Step 4: Assign the Hiring Manager

It's crucial to designate a hiring manager who will oversee the recruitment process for this job. By assigning a responsible team member, you ensure that the right person can manage candidate interactions and assess applicant suitability.

Keep in mind that when creating a job, you will automatically be added as a Hiring Manager on the job unless you remove yourself and assign another user. To assign additional Hiring Managers, simply click the drop-down arrow on the Hiring Manager field and select as many Users as needed. They will gain access to the job posting description and applicant details. Note that specific permissions are based on each user's permission level.

Step 5: Click 'Publish'

Once you've filled in all the necessary details and reviewed your job posting, it's time to click the "Publish" button. Your job listing will now be live and accessible to potential candidates who visit your careers page or other relevant channels.

Need to come back to it later? No problem! Simply select Save as Draft and your job posting will be saved in the Offline jobs filter for you to return to at a later time.

Step 6: Consider Sponsored Job Listings

To reach an even broader pool of potential candidates, you can opt to sponsor your job listing on various job boards. This paid feature can help you expand your reach and attract more qualified candidates to your job opening.

That's it! You've successfully created a job listing in your ATS, and you're now one step closer to finding the ideal candidate for your organization.

Remember, the more accurate and appealing your job posting is, the better your chances of attracting the right candidates. Regularly monitor your job listings, update them as needed, and stay engaged with your ATS to make the most of this valuable tool for your hiring needs.

Other Fields

Job Code: The Job Code field is entirely optional and can be used to associate an alphanumeric code with your job listing. It's a helpful feature for coordinating internal HR and recruiting processes outside of your account. This code will be visible on your dashboard (in condensed mode) when viewing applicants and on your public-facing online job listing.

Location Details (City, State, and Country): These fields are essential for indicating the geographical location of the job opportunity. If your company is headquartered in one city but the job is in another, be sure to specify the accurate location by entering the city and state. This ensures that candidates understand where the position is based. For Remote positions, be sure to check the Remote box but also still enter an accurate location to ensure that our job board partners index your job. Some boards require a legitimate location with every job listing. 

Keyword Detection: Our system's powerful analysis engine can help you find the best candidates. To do this, simply add a comma-delimited list of keywords relevant to the job. The analysis engine will scan applicant resumes for these keywords and alert you when a match is found. For instance, if you're hiring for a programmer role and require JavaScript and Ruby experience, add these as keywords (e.g., JavaScript, Ruby), and our system will do the rest.

Hide Listing: You can choose to hide your job posting from your job listings page while still publishing it on our job board partners' websites. If you'd like to know more about hiding a job, please check our detailed guide here. Don't worry; you can always edit this selection at any time after creating your job posting if your plans change.

Form Builder: Our Form Builder feature empowers you to add custom questions, automate applicant archiving based on their answers, and more. For additional information and a comprehensive guide on using the Form Builder, click here.
